My favorite time is coming! Hurray!
I don’t know how’s about you, but I am a Christmas person! I love everything about Christmas and I can’t wait to spend this magical time with my family and friends.
My Christmas break is mostly fully covered with eating, watching Tv, chilling and hunting Christmas sweets. For this year I’ve decided to make some sugar-free cookies and make my Christmas eating without a guilty feelings.
Vegan Christmas cookies
It’s easy to make and so tasty! I used Xylitol as I wanted to make it sugar-free, but I am sure you can use any organic sugar and it will taste great (even better)!
This is my first Vegan cookies and Christmas baking at all so I was not sure about combination with Xylitol, but I think the taste is alright even without using refined sugar.
To keep this recipe fully vegan use vegan butter and non-diary milk.
If you want to keep your meals and especially desserts sugar-free and with fewer calories, you can grab some sweeteners. The taste is different but at least you will cut some extra calories from the desserts. The sweeteners are mostly used for low-carb diets.
